What if I go on vacation?
If you leave for vacation, we recommend you gift your flowers to a friend. It will be your responsibility to find a substitute for your flowers. No credits or refunds will be issued for missed weeks. If flowers are not picked up they will be donated to senior care homes in the area.
What type of flowers can I expect?
I'm planting a variety of seasonal flowers to fill your bouquets. Typically they will have 10-15 stems depending on the types of flowers that are ready wrapped in kraft paper and tied up with love.
Spring flowers: tulips, nacissus, sweet peas, lilac, ranunculus, anenome, peony
Summer flowers: poppies, snap dragon, zinnia, bells of ireland, lace flower, celosia, herbs
Autumn: Dahlias, fall foliage, sedum, sunflowers, amaranth
Expect to see uncomon colors, varieties and vintage blooms in my distinctive style.
Your flowers will be wrapped with a special water foam on stems. They should be good out of water for an hour. When you arrive home remove the wrapping and cut stems 1/2 inch and put in warm water to rehydrate. If any wilting occurs - pull that stem and recut 1 inch and put in warm water to drink. They will generally bounce back to life in 15 min.
If the weather is hot - don't leave in closed car or direct sun for more then 15-20 min. Try to park in the shade if your running errands.
What is a CSA?
An abbreviation for Community Supported Agriculture. When you become a Wild Ginger Garden member, you are buying a "share" of the seasonal flowers growing at that time.
Being part of a CSA invites everyone to love the land, its changing seasons, and the beauty it offers. I hope you will consider joining mine.
Offering weekly or every other week subscriptions of hand-tied bouquets ready for pick up at Wild Ginger Gardens or other designated locations.
